up in flames and four other houses. >> we think back about katrina and what a big impact that was on our country, we rarely think about the wind and the rain that was the initial storm, we think of the aftermath. right now we're in the aftermath period in terms of sandy. tell me how you feel about that. and before we get to rebuilding, people taking care of continuing damage right now, how do you assess the coordination between the state, federal, and local municipalities? >> i think we're doing very well. i think the president's response has been terrific, really. it's been coordinated unlike some of what happened in katrina. and you heard governor christie, who is a republican with president obama working together, and that's how it's been from the president, to the governor, to the counties and the towns. one of the things that i did today was talk to fema about trying to get an office and staff person in various parts of the district today, and they're working on it, and with the money that comes to downs for recovery to rebuild board walks or municipal buildings, i t
a comparison with hurricane katrina. i want to use it as an analogy. but the analogy here that might be helpful, we think back to katrina and what that meant to us as a nation. we very rarely think about the wind and the rain that was the initial storm. right now we are in the aftermath period of this superstorm, sandy. how do you feel in terms of dealing with the aftermath, describing those explosions, these ongoing worries. before we get to rebuilding, rescuing people, taking care of continuing damage right now. how would you assess the response and the coordination between the federal government, the state government, municipalities. how are we doing? >> i think we're doing very well. i mean, you heard the president, and i have to say that i think his response has been terrific, really. and it's been coordinated, unlike some of what happened in katrina. and you heard, you know, governor christie, who's a republican, with president obama, working together. and that's how it's been, from the president to the governor, all the way down to the county and the towns. so one of the things that i di
and not a problem and that was the same kind of initial reaction we got after katrina, 2005, i'm not again, not comparing the gravity of the two events, but comparing the immediate initial response over the handling of this event and what i'm noting is the distinct difference in the coverage of 2005 versus this storm in 2012. and whether it's going to be an issue a few days from know you. >> it could be. what we're seeing now that the mayor's moment of let them eat cake, passed, the marathon. i've yet to see him in staten island. >> neil: i don't know that he's been there yet. >> that's interesting. doesn't that tell you everything that your two people you listened and other lady you interviewed said. the fact of the matter is, there is a political effort to run the clock out and with the media just like they've done on libya, just like they've hidden the truth about libya, it's the hide the truth about this and the service of obama's campaign of the let's get it straight. the president-- >> and the first to take camera crews to go to staten island and show it, fox was. and other media glo
it is expensive and did not work in katrina and expensive to check power lines, concrete utility poles, prepare for 14 foot waves, drone aircraft in hot spots and bigger work crews, utilities and oil 16 times earnings multiple at the highest evaluation in years and there's a reason, when governments put the onus on them to do it, they have to pass along some of which means rating crease last for consumers. cheryl: with the political criticism and another storm in the northeast, is now the time to sell or hold these utilities? travis miller utilities analyst at morningstar joins us now. buying these names under pressure, what do you say? >> if you look at the storm in particular, we think obviously it is a huge storm for utilities, we had eight million plus customers out of power which is among the worst storms we give seen in a long time. we estimate $1 billion of damage to polls, wires and other distribution, transmission assets. we put those in perspective we are talking about utilities here that have among the largest customer baaes in the country and the largest capital bases in the [talkin
katrina. >> troops and heavy equipment continued to move into the strike zone. >> the tattered road to recovery, and littered with debris. >> every single person on this block lost everything. >> crews are clearing away what they can. supplies and support are pouring in, but there is not enough to meet the overwhelming need. >> this is not something that is going to be over until long time. >> charging stations provide survivors with a lifeline. the subway in new york is slowly coming back online. as officials race to get ready for the marathon this weekend, some are frustrated saying it is too soon and the waste of valuable resources. >> the city of new york is talking about getting water out of the battery tonneau. and preparing for a marathon. do you see that disconnect? >> in some of the hardest-hit communities, the water may be anger ut the residents' is still rising. >> the views show what could've happened to us. look at the widespread damage. she got a chance to see the devastation around her family's vacation home. parts of the area are just unrecognizable. >> this was plan
. do you think they would have run the new orleans marathon the week of katrina? >> right. i don't think so. >> steve: of course not. >> gretchen: rest of the headlines for saturday. president obama ordering the military to send extra gallons of fuel to new york and in the wake of seand. gas shortages unless people panicked. gas will be rationed starting at noon people with license plates ending in odd number will only be able to buy gas. cars with license plates ending in even number can fill up on even numbered days. four ohio men busted for stealing mitt romney campaign signs. some were found in a union truck. police found tools that could be used to take signs down. local campaign workers have had problems with signs being stolen. this the is first time someone has been caught. the men were arrested and face misdemeanor charges. people in parts ofism know are going to have to pony up extra money if they want to buy a gun now. cook county, which includes chicago, has approved a tax that charges people 2 a dollars for every gun that they buy. well, the move is expected to raise
of hurricane katrina. this is a response and a relief effort that is woefully inadequate. we have people without gasoline. we have people without power. now it's almost a million and a half people. came down about a half million from the weekend. it is a very tough job. but let's be clear. we have an emergency situation here in this federal government is not responding. it is not doing what it should help. we are supposed to have gasoline supplies and hundreds of thousands of people -- they don't have power to run their generators. we are supposed to have gasoline for the people, the motorists, the commuters, those were trying to go about their work lives without heat and without power in their homes and their kids are not in any case to be in school. and we have a president who is not responding to the emergency. he is campaigning. i understand the conflict. but my goodness, part of what he is required to do and part of what this governor, chris christie should be thanking him for, is actually being effective. that hasn't happened at. megyn: lightning chris christie was so fawning? lou:
city. however if you go back seven years to hurricane katrina the news then about that storm was how president bush and fema and michael brown and everybody failed. you never heard about mayor nagan and governor belong could he. now the situation is reversed and it's bloomberg taking the blame for the storm and not doing better for it as opposed to president obama. if this were bush right now you'd be seeing a split screen of bush campaigning, and then people being miserable in their wrecked houses back home in queens. jon: what about that? we heard from david lee miller earlier today, a hispanic woman getting up there in years complaining how absolutely miserable it is where she's live. why should that not be president obama's fault as it was president bush's fault? >> katrina was a much larger national issue than with all due respect to queens. jon: why? >> because katrina was -- the magnitude of katrina in terms of what it represented nationally was not specific to a neighborhood in new york. overall the reaction to sandy has been -- jon: so the president is not -- i mean he's the
reasonna you think they would -- katrina you think they would wake up, but no, it will not clear up until we do declare bankruptcy, that money comes from poor people, if you borrow it, they are indebted, if you don't borrow you print it, they get a business cycle, and they end up without their job, and they think it is for free, wake up and see, every time government spends money it is a cost and a tax, comes back and hits middle class more than anyone else, esspecially low income middle class who try to survive, they suffer the most from all of these programs even with a pretense they will take care of us forever. neil: and you always look cruel if you oppose it but track record is such, like telethons, their heart is in the right place but if haiti got a fraction of the money that was pledged after earthquakes and disaster its would look like atlantis right now. >> that is right, same thing over again, you know where that will take us. neil: we have to think through this, folks. ron paul always a please oar sir, thank you. >> swing state mayors are duking it on the ground, a republican
. but it's brutal. this is our version of katrina. i've been touring the south shore today in my district, and the devastation is enormous. what you're showing on your screen is typical of many areas on long island. right now the county executive is meeting with fema to set up plans as to how the recovery will take place. work is coming in from all over the country to work with lipa, to restore the power, but it's going to be a tough haul. i can say that everything that can be done is being done. over the next several days, you'll see more power being restored. this could go on for another ten days to two weeks. >> are there still people missing? there are a lot of people who chose to ride this storm out. a lot of people who weren't even in areas that were supposed to be at high risk and they're still there. >> yeah. for instance, long beach, which is an island 30,000, 40,000 people on the island. many of them stayed, and i was talking to several people today. and this is just anecdotal. friends of theirs who cannot find their wife or daughters or their sons, cousins, people in homes who
was the head of fema when katrina struck, and he criticized the president for being too quick to respond to this tragedy. i say bring it on. more criticism like that. >> and he wasn't afraid to hammer the romney campaign over their continued use of the completely misleading jeep ad, in the way that only bill clinton can do. >> when i was a kid and i got caught with my hand in a cookie jar, my face got red and i took my hand out of the cookie jar. this guy gets caught, he digs down and gets some more cookies. they actually increased the ad buy on an ad they knew was false because they think you're dumb. i think you're smart and i think barack obama will be the next president. >> "mork times" blog shows president obama ahead by less than 1 point. president clinton's appeal with white certain voters could be the final push the president needs in the state of virginia. let's bring in joy reid. i want to say i've never seen a former president be so effective. i think a lot of people are going to be able to point to bill clinton and say this is one of the major reasons why president obama was
voiced came from michael brown who was the head of fema when katrina struck. and he criticized the president for being too quick to respond to his tragedy. i say bring it on. >> and he wasn't afraid to hammer the romney campaign over their continued use of the completely misleading jeep ad in the way that only bill clinton can do. >> when i was a kid and i caught caught with my hand in the cookie jar, i sort of shrugged my shoulders, my face got red and i took my hand out of the cookie char. this guy gets caught with his hand in the cookie jar, he digs down and gets more cookies. i actually increased the ad on an ad they knew was false because they think you're dumb. i think you're smart. and i think barack obama will be the next president. >> new york times 538 blogs shows president obama added virginia by less than one point. pthd clinton's appeal with white, southern voters could be the final push the president needs in the state of virginia. let's bring in the managing editor. i've never seen a former president be so effective. i don't know how i'll be able to point to bill
-generated." it was almost like here you had the media championing the idea of bipartisanship, but with hurricane katrina they went in the opposite direction and they wanted demonization. >> help me out, what is good about it? what is good about the response? people are still dying. bob: it has six days. >> eight, but who is counting. >> my count it was last monday but maybe it is six days. the point is what he said here was a fair thing on say, they have done a remarkably good job, it was 8.5 million people without electricity and now it is 3 million. he deserves to get credit. why not? why not give him credit? >> what did he do? governor chris christie said you do a good job, thank you. what does he do? we are still looking for people. >> people are still looking for fema, and i am surprised they are applauding president obama for spending a lot of money. he has been green lighting spending for four years in office. he has a black belt in green light spending. >> presidents do not have a lot to do with state and local recovery and they shouldn't. if you have competent state and local government to hand
katrina, so i made a little short about that day when we were there. again, i kind of was amazed at how moving it was to do this. i just fell in love with the process. >> you got this video somewhere that you haven't used? >> no, and then we ended up putting together a film we submitted to a bunch of film festivals. we kept getting rejected and kept getting teased. people would say, this is really brilliant. but then convenient twamly i got it in the hands of an executive at hbo. he brought me in. he said i love the film, we love the film here. we don't want to buy it, but we want to hire you to produce the all-comers project, which is a big public health camp feign. >> you still have all that video you haven't used. >> and then i continued to edit the film, and eventually, it was sent to the documentary channel, and it was on amazon and zulu. >> and the name? >> our time." >> and it made it into the always anaheim pers project. -- the alzheimer's project. >> i think you can buy it on d.v.d. and stream is online as well. i submitted our film, "our time," which was our first film. and i
from and they're doing that with huge pumps. some of them deployed after katrina. they're pumping right now i think 700,000 gallons an hour. they hope later by later today they'll be pumping some 2 million gallons an hour. they're attacking this right now. at the same time, they try to push the debris out of their city. >> any idea, jim, how long that will take, that process of pumping it out? >> no. i don't really know how long it will take. because, you know, they're going to pump basements out. there's a high school near here. pumping that basement out. their gymnasium and back in to it so all the water's going to come out of the homes in to those lakes even as those lakes are being emptied and going to empty them all the way down to the bottom. it's certainly going to be a process. a weeklong process but at the same time the long-term outlook is here to rebuild and rebuild by memorial day, before the beginning of summer 2013. and they know that's even a tall order. may seem like seven months away, eight months away, no, there's so much work to be done in rebuilding it takes every bi
agree, to what we saw at katrina. and it seems this president is getting a total pass. what could you have done if you were thinking ahead? >> everything they didn't do. >> brian: like for example? >> preposition the water, preposition generators, kind of anticipate the fact that there would be a lack of gasoline and have a lot of that ready to go. then if i actually got one of those things, there are airplanes to bring them in. >> brian: jfk is open. >> when fema said we don't have enough water because we didn't preposition it, first of all, everybody should yell out, what are you a bunch of i have had yachts? next, they could fly it in immediately. they could fly it in today. you could fly anything you want into kennedy airport. if there is lack of water, lack of generators, lack of anything, how comfy ma is not organizing flying massive amounts of this in? you know how close kennedy airport is to where you live, brian. right? >> brian: 30 minutes. >> right next to breezy point. those poor people have been totally devastated. or where ten people died. this is as bad as katrina. >> b
power has already been restored but it's brutal. this is really our version of katrina. i'm not saying any two tragedies are alike but i've been touring the south shore today in my district and massapequa, lindenhurst, what you're showing is typical of many areas on long island. fema the county executives are meeting with fema to set up exact plans as to how recovery will take place. workers are coming in from all over the country to restore the power but it's a tough haul. i don't want to give anyone any false hope. everything that can be done is being done. i think over the next several days you will see more power being restored but this could go on for another ten days to two weeks. >> are there people still missing? what we saw in hoboken, new jersey, 20,000 people are still there, stuck with water beneath their apartments and their homes but there are a lot of people who chose to ride this storm out, a lot of people who weren't in areas that were supposed to be at high risk and they're still there. >> yes, for instance long beach, which is an island probably 34,000 people on the
exactly because we do not know the total number. some think it will only be second to katrina. there will be tens of billions of dollars. we are doing a continual resolution until april 1. whether or not that will be enough remains to be seen. every time there's a disaster on the west coast, an earthquake, a flood and the mississippi, a tornado, we pull together as congress, republicans and democrats and do what has to be done. i do not expect new jersey will be treated any differently. i know my colleagues in surrounding states, especially in new york and new england states were very hard hit. i have been in contact with republicans and democrats. i think we are going to join together and do what is necessary. we do not know what those numbers are. i think it is premature to speculate too much. host: thank you for joining us. good luck to you. guest: thank you. host: a want to point to an editorial in bloomberg. that cannot from michael bloomberg, the mayor of new york. he writes that he votes for president to lead on climate change. he says the climate is changing how the in
went through katrina in mississippi says that's absolutely what governor christy ought to say, he is doing what he has to do and get off his back. and you have the underground voices of the romney campaign who were taking a different tack and kind of sniping at christie at different angles, in a fit of pique basically. >> you can't really blame them. this is game theory. you choose a, i choose b. if my guy looks like he is helping you, even if he is not truly helping you, and appearance has a tendency to be a reality, i don't blame the romney folks for being a little piqued or po'ed. >> you may not blame them, but for showing it. some of the conservatives who backed governor romney showing that they were quite irritated with this and rather take the high road, knowing that all eyes are on this storm and the response. so marc, looking at these numbers, 73% of the folks in ohio, who already approved the bailout and now approve the president's response to sandy, what do we make of that when you couple it with the chris christie hug heard around the world it seems. we can't stop talki
to learn the lessons of katrina. you watch the next three or four weeks. everything you are seeing on staten island is the government that barack obama thinks is competent enough to handle your healthcare. this is a really bad situation. because of the presidential campaign it's not getting the attention it should be getting. >> speaker, thank you. >> thank you. >> and wisconsin will matter and vice president candidate paul ryan is about to rally his hometown crowd one more time. can the republican ticket take the badger town? that's next. and what about the evangelical vote? it was a huge vote in '08. is the media underestimating the impact of the evangelicals this year? sarah palin is here. she's been talking to the evangelicals. that's coming up. try running four.ning a restaurant is hard, fortunately we've got ink. it gives us 5x the rewards on our internet, phone charges and cable, plus at office supply stores. rewards we put right back into our business. this is the only thing we've ever wanted to do and ink helps us do it. make your mark with ink from chase. if we want to im
's katrina. >> americans are afraid to say they're voting against obama because they'll be accused of racism. >> your boss promised hope and change and he didn't deliver. >> i think you attributed only positive tough to mitt romney and you said barack obama didn't get anything done. >> comes down to this, one day. >> who are you voting for? >> i think you know. >> i feel pretty good. >> i feel great. >> last time you're going to vote for yourself? >> i don't think so. >> it's a great tradition. >> congratulations on a spirited campaign. looking forward to the results. >> feel great about ohio. >> expect that we'll have a good night. >> there's a lot of technical jargon in there. the candidate who has more voters is going to win. >> let's get right to our panel now. with me is ana marie cox of "the guardian," little anliana gil v and krystal ball my colleague. before i say anything else, i want to say i love you women. >> yeah! >> on a serious note, mitt romney tells us america is inches from the apocalypse, we're going to lose our freedoms and our foundation of our judeo-christian religion.
fema is considering bringing in trailers and prefab houses after the hurricane. katrina, more than 20,000 people are homeless. on the jersey shore homeowners working away at clearing out muddy water and sand that's enveloped their homes, all this as voting is getting under way and as we say ron allen is in hoboken new jersey outside city hall. let's talk about the cleanup and how it's affecting the voting, ron. >> well, the ta got off to a rough start in some places like here in hoboken, for example, there are instances of voting sites that didn't have power, that needed generators or they had generators, didn't have fuel. a similar situation out in staten island and in long island, new york, hard hit places by the storm. here at city hall they've consolidated voting places, now two here where there's usually one. but the bottom line is people are making their way do the best they can to vote and anecdotally it seems turnout is brisk here and in the new york area. at the end of the day, a lot of power came back on and this town, for example, hoboken, that was hard hit, about 90% of th
party that was publicly voiced came from michael brown, who was the head of fema when katrina struck, and he criticized the president for being too quick to respond to this tragedy. i say bring it on. more criticism like that. >> and he wasn't afraid to hammer the romney campaign over their continued use of the completely misleading jeep ad in the way that only bill clinton can do. >> when i was a kid and i got caught with my hand in a cookie jar, sort of shrugged my shoulders, and my face got red and i took my hand out of the cookie jar. this guy gets caught, he digs down and gets some more cookies. they actually increased the ad buy on an ad they knew was false because they think you're dumb. i think you're smart and i think barack obama will be the next president. "the new york times," fivethirtyeight blog shows president obama ahead by less than one point. president clinton's appeal with white certain voters could be the final push the president needs in the state of virginia. let's bring in joy reid from thegrio.com. i want to say i've never seen a former president be so effecti
and would like to have you back. >> spoken as a governor who handled katrina. >> jobs and the economy fell opt heels of the october jobs report. what do the candidates need to tell voters in the final hours before we go to the polls? try running four.ning a restaurant is hard, fortunately we've got ink. it gives us 5x the rewards on our internet, phone charges and cable, plus at office supply stores. rewards we put right back into our business. this is the only thing we've ever wanted to do and ink helps us do it. make your mark with ink from chase. >>> iit the biggest issue of te election, putting americans back to work. on friday we received the latest national jobs report. the unemployment rate kicked up slightly to 7.9%. the economy added 171,000 jobs for context of just above what we need to do to keep up with population growth. 23 million americans remain un employed or underemployed and that is a sticky that stuck for a long time. if you lost your job today on average it would take you until next august to find one. maybe you find one sooner but maybe it takes you a lot longer. we w
experience with hurricane katrina, will that go through tuesday? >> it looks like it will go through tuesday. it's a big boost for president obama. he got the opportunity once again to operate in a crisis mode and got very high thumbs up from everybody, including republican governor, conservative governor chris christie. i think mitt romney made a terrible mistake. many people in the republican party are beating up on christie for being too warm or something, too kind to president obama. i think mitt romney made a mistake of not acting more presidential. calling republican governors and mobilizing people to bring supplies in. and taking more -- be positive about president obama. americans aren't voting a political leader. they are looking for a leader. >> you wrote mitt romney ought to have said i'm 100% behind this president. we're americans right now. his leadership is important for the country. how would you sell that to his campaign advisers? >> the problem mitt romney has and this isn't about advisers anymore. it's about saving the jersey shore and staten island. it's about caring enoug
damaging as what we are calling cold katrina up in new york. it feels unfortunate to look at tonight a political sense. but we know politics is part of life. the storm slowed up the romney campaign in a way by taking all the attention onto the president and going to the storm. and it sort of slowed up romney. but at the end of the day i think it's a wash for president obama. i don't think it does anything for him. then the situation in new york is turning grimmer. but, megyn, i think overall there has been a grimness and joylessness and profound negativity to the president's campaign. i don't think if it turns out he is the winner, i don't think it will help him govern. i think it will almost make it more difficult for him to work with republicans and gather anything together. you look at a picture of a romney rally and it looks happy. obama rally feels a little bit different. megyn: you said you suspect both romney and obama have a sense of what's coming and you think you can see it in the candidate's faces. in your experience is that true? >> you know, you sort of can tell in the b
